# Distance-time graphs

For the GCSE course you need to be able to:

Recall and use the equation (average) speed = distance / time |

Recall and use the equation distance travelled = average speed x time |

Analyse distance-time graphs and be able to determine the speed from the gradient of the graph. |

Recall some typical speeds encountered in everyday life. |

Describe laboratory methods for determining the speeds of objects, for example light gates. |
